The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is a landmark Beaux-Arts building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street in Midtown Manhattan. This iconic building houses outstanding research collections in the humanities and social sciences and a circulating children’s library, home to the real Winnie-the-Pooh. Guarded by world-famous marble lions Patience and Fortitude, the Library houses architectural wonders include the stunning Map Division and the breathtaking Rose Main Reading Room, nearly the length of a football field. Don’t miss free exhibitions and daily tours.
